Although the overwhelmingly most daunting quality-of-life (QoL) issues related to severe incontinence is experienced by the sufferers and family and caretakers of those who have the condition, there is a substantial social cost to pay for the condition related to both the tens of billions of plastic-based diapers used and discarded in landfills every year that are used to deal with the problem in adults around the world, which problem is further exacerbated by all of the toxic cleaning solutions used to otherwise launder the none-plastic clothing and bedding of the incontinence sufferers. Notwithstanding that the problem is bad enough related to the infant market, as of next year, the adult plastic diaper market will, for the first time in history, be projected to exceed the size of the infant market. This horrendous and growing (but correctable) problem speaks volumes for introducing safe and effective treatments to curb the Tsunami of new cases. The PMD Bluetooth-controlled bionic valve device has been designed specifically to optimally treat the severer cases of adult (or birth defect afflicted children) urinary, and as a follow-on product, fecal incontinence throughout the world, which would result in the substantial reduction of use of diapers and the soiling of bed linens for those implanted with the device. The overall effect would be prospectively, a reduction of up to 2,000 diapers per patient per year.
